When a property starts to flood sometimes it can be because your main sewer line is clogged. Several reason below as to way a sewer line gets clogged up.
Main sewer lines can get obstructed and or clogged for several reasons. One being caused by tree roots that get through your line weather its clay, cast iron, or plastic. No matter what roots grows with water and tree roots will find their way to a water source. Another, reasons sewer lines can clogged is from foreign products that get flushed or accidentally put down drains. Just because products say there are “flushable or septic tank safe” doesn’t mean they should be flushed.

Sewer lines can be repaired meaning excavated if necessary but this is at last resort. Before digging up a broken line you must be 100% sure it needs to be repaired. Lots of times properties have horrible access’s or small clean-outs to properly even clean their sewer main line. After a company cleans your sewer line they can camera it and see the condition and pitch the line is in.
